America has been honoring brilliant students through honor societies since 1921. Educators began to notice the need for subject specific honor societies in America’s high schools in the 1980's. Since then, new honor societies have sprung up to recognize and encourage students in such areas as English, Art, French, and Spanish. Until now, there has been no national honor society for Science. In this era of rapidly changing technologies and scientific advancement, it is time to encourage and recognize high school students in the Sciences.
SNHS is a prominent scientific organization that will engender a new group of young thinkers who will be the future of industry, research, and scientific exploration for America.
(SNHS is not directly affiliated with the National Honor Society but we do maintain a cordial and professional relationship with that organization.)
The SNHS will be redesigning our web site. For the next couple of months, changes will come and go. Be ready for a new look on this site.
All staff are still working on the SNHS, but the physical address of the SNHS operation has changed so make a note for the future:
Science National Honor Society
15901 Amis Court
Austin, Texas 78734.
(If you send it to another address we will never receive it. Make sure you are not using an old address from an invoice or an old letter from the Society.
The phone is also now (512) 937-2305.
The SNHS recommends that you use Chrome as the browser of choice on this site.
The scholarship applications period for the 2020-2021 school year is closed. The winners will receive a $1000 scholarship. The number of scholarships that will be awarded will be based on donations we receive through this March.
Some teachers prefer to submit their letters of recomendation directly to the SNHS. Have those letters be sent directly to:
Treasurer, Science National Honor Society
15901 Amis Court, Austin, Texas 78734.
